I’ve turned the thermostat in my apartment down to 62 degrees. That’s because last month my gas bill was higher than I budgeted for and I can’t have that.
Suffice it to say, that it’s a little chilly and the cats have become very cuddly all of a sudden.
This morning I learned why the bill was higher last month. Imp has been covering the floor vent in the living room with her supine body. Probably all day while I’m away. That’s the room the thermostat is in. That means that room never gets warm enough for the heater to stop running and it runs and runs and runs and the bill gets higher and higher. Imp, the little sucubus, has been stealing the heat needed for the household to keep her tummy warm.
I’d like to believe that she doesn’t realize, that she’s just a cat, but I know her too well. I know she somehow figured out that it wasn’t just a warm place to sleep but also that she could keep the furnace going by sleeping on the vent all day. It’s obvious from the way she flattens her whole body out over the vent. The selfish @#$%%!
